Following an initial installation of the UGT-S100 card and driver, the Windows Device Manager assured me that the card was “working properly” and that the appropriate signed driver was installed. Why, then, was I not getting sound? I turned to more or less systematic troubleshooting (e.g., I had disabled the on-board sound chip, but now also removed the driver; I attached a different set of speakers to the card; I removed the Vantec card, uninstalled the driver, rebooted, shut down, reinstalled the card (in a different PCI slot) and the driver, etc., etc., etc.). Still no sound from the speakers. Finally, multiple reboots and well over an hour into mucking around, I went to the Windows Device Manager to check speaker/sound card assignments and realized from what I was seeing that I probably needed to manually select/assign the speakers as the default devices to play sound from the newly installed Vantec card. Aha! Sound at last! Perhaps I’m alone (or with a very tiny minority) in experiencing this installation problem, or in not knowing that I needed to make this (obvious?) change. However, neither the Vantec installation guide nor the User Manual for the card mentions that such a manual device assignment change might be required in some cases. So far as I know, this is not knowledge with which all human beings are born. And, to be fair, this was not noted as an installation issue by any of about 20+ online commentators whose reviews of the product I read. This could mean that (1) most users know that this manual adjustment (obviously!) needs to be done, (2) the problem only arises rarely and perhaps only with a few surviving antiquated systems/motherboards such as the one I own, or (3) most users/purchasers who experience this problem do not solve it, but send back the card for a refund or different brand replacement, or perhaps just throw it away. Such folks also may be (understandably) disinclined to spend even more time writing a review.
By the way, while there is a driver on the provided product CD and Windows seems to install a (generic?) driver when it discovers the newlt installed card and the CD is not available. There also is an easy-to-use driver installation setup in a zipped file that includes a small but informative User Manual, all available for download on the Vantec Web site, The driver from the Vantec Web site also installs a console for the card, identified by an icon in the Windows tray. Users in a position to make use of the card’s full range of features may find the console handy. With my low-end, 2-channel system, I’m just happy to be hearing decent stereo sound again. So, one day in, no longer annoyed by a mysterious installation glitch, and after listening to a wide range of audio, I’m quite satisfied with the Vantec UGT-S100.
can get drivers from the CD or the Vantec website but Windows 7 will use generic drivers and it works fine.
I use it with a HTPC for the SPIDF out and it sends a good 5.1 surround sound signal to my receiver.
get a good cable like the Belkin PureAV Digital Coaxial cable
